The Inspection Panel, The World Bank
The World Bank Inspection Panel is an independent complaints mechanism for people and communities who believe that they have been, or are likely to be, adversely affected by a World Bank-funded project. The Bank’s Board of Executive Directors created the Panel in 1993 to ensure that people have access to an independent body to express their concerns and seek recourse.
The Panel is an impartial fact-finding body, independent from the World Bank management and staff, reporting directly to the Board. The Panel process aims to promote accountability at the World Bank, give people a greater voice in activities supported by the Bank that affect their rights and interests, and foster redress when warranted.See more
